of ours. >> gregg: doug is live in delaware where residents are anxiously preparing for sandy? >> it is basically here right now. winds are gusting probably about 30 miles an hour. gusting a bit more than that. gust comes along and knocks you off your feet a little bit. this is shaping up in this area as a classic storm coming out of north-northeast. it is typically in this region. nor'easters cause more damage than hurricanes. it's called the ash wednesday storm of 1962, johnf. kennedy was president. hundreds of buildings were destroyed in this area, literally thousands of buildings were badly damaged. president kennedy declared a disaster area. because of that and characteristics of this storm so closely mirror that, the governor of delaware has called for a mandatory evacuation all people are suppose to that out of the beach by 8:00 p.m. tonight. by our perusal of the beach a lot of people are not heeding that advice. we a that you sau a couple people step in the surf. authorities got them out of the waves. a little while ago i saw a woman running down the beach with a todd
, a very different look inside the campaign from presidential historian doug brinkley who got an opportunity to watch his tore being made as well as what president obama called mitt romney. it rhymes with, well, show-bidder. it's causing outrage tonight. this, on the other hand, there may be reason for the romney campaign to cheer. the breaking news. the abc news/"washington post" tracking poll now has mitt romney ahead by three points and more crucially, hitting the 50% mark for the first time. in our own cnn poll of polls, governor romney currently enjoys a one-point lead, 48-47. as you no doubt know, the race will boil down to a few key states and tonight, we also have new numbers from the nbc/"wall street journal" poll in colorado showing the race there tied. in nevada, the same poll has president obama out front by three, whereas in virginia, new polling from fox has mr. romney up by two. that's a nine-point swing in his favor since september. now, not coincidentally the campaigns in the last several days have stopped in all of those states. take a look. how would you lik
, meteorologist maria molina, and doug mcelway on the bach. >> we're tracking sandy, a hushing maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour and some things to note and we've been repeating that sandy from one to the other, expands about 800 miles and we're starting to feel the impacts cross portions of eastern pennsylvania, maryland, down through portions of delaware and mind you. the center of the storm is over 500 miles away from the new york city area, so we have time to go here, about 48 hours of time that we will be feeling the impacts across the the new york city area from sandy through at least early wednesday morning and some heavy rain is still falling across portions of the outer banks of north carolina, eastern parts of virginia and like i just mentioned some of the heavy rain picking up across eastern portions of pennsylvania. something else we're noticing with sandy, the wind is picking up. shy of 40 miles per hour across portions of long island, the new york city area, wind gusts shy of 30 miles per hour and strong winds as well across much of new jersey, atlantic city, seeing one
it to be presidential? a fair and balanced debate on that. monica, doug schoen, coming up. >> they have been unable to lay out a agenda to what to do to help america. they have been unable to defend and describe what they do to get our economy going again. that is with a president out of ideas and out of excuses, november 6th, you can make sure you put him out of office. [cheers and applause] bill: fox news has obtained more internal e-mails. this one sent by the state department to members of the obama administration. now this document describes an attack on a shelter about a mile away from the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, under mortar attack. here is secretary of state hillary clinton downplaying some of those e-mails a bit yesterday at the state department. >> you know, posting something on facebook is not in and of itself evidence and i think it just underscores how fluid the reporting was at the time and continued for some time to be. bill: senator john mccain is one of three members of the senate who just sent a letter to the white house asking for more questions. member of the senate a
. doug schoen a democratic strategist, fox news contributor. and also a republican strategist is joining us from the american enterprise institute. doug, vice president biden last week talking about the fact that we basically have unemployment, things are getting better. the president has to address that tonight. >> it is undeniably the case that it is better to be 7.8 than 8. but when you look at discouraged workers, underemployed and unemployed workers this is still a very very weak economy and the administration has yet to come up with a compelling defense of a record that leaves them deeply politically vulnerable tonight. cheryl: i think you gave mark's argument for him. >> i often agree with doug. cheryl: obviously, okay. >> i often agree with doug, and i do agree with him right now. vice president biden was gloating in the debate last week that after 43 months we got it down to 7.8%. but the fact is if you count all the workers who left the workforce, the unemployment rate is really closer to 11%. as you have pointed out, we have had 43 months of this high unemployment. that really
of transplants like doug who moved here from new york. >> you're asking about the analogy with the barbecue, whether it's vinegar based or the tomato based, the thing i notice here is people are steeped in the way they've always done it. very -- very traditional. zbr but tradition can be upended. >> you're 70 -- >> 74. >> yes. >> you're black. you saw the first black president elected. yet you're sitting here saying i'm not sure. >> i'm not sure. but head west to lexington. the politics in this part of the state is mostly red. just like the sauce. >> they know the best politics. this is where to find it here in lexington, north carolina. it's going to make it harder to do what --? >> to survive. last g around president obama won north carolina by 14,000 votes. >> who are you voting for? >> obama. >> who did you vote for before? >> obama. >> why are you voting for him again? >> because he's doing a good job. >> i think obama needs needs to put his man pants on. >> presidential politics like barbecue, split down the middle. it will likely go late into the evening, like a midnight buffet. >> k
and fiscal responsibility and reform. great to see both of you. appreciate it. doug, let me start with you. this stood out to me last night that independent voters liked that when he talked about cutting tacks for the middle class. obviously the obama administration takes issue with it and says it isn't true. do you think this could be enough, if mitt romney could make the case for him to win the election? >> i think it's a very important point. remember why he wants to have the tax reform he wants. it's to make sure that the united states grows better than we've seen in the past four years. and what mr. romney is trying to say is, look, we have all these people out of work. we have all these people with jobs whose incomes are not growing. let's lower rates, broaden the base, be respectful of the middle class and the deficit by but have a better tax policy in place. it's good positions for him. the president can't even get the first step right. instead of lowering rates and broadening the base, he is insisting on raising taxes. that's a bit of a tough sell right now. it was the same presid
devastated so many businesses. doug mckelway has the news. live tonight in golf shores, alabama. hey, doug. >> hey, shep. you know, two years since the worst he can logical disaster in u.s. history. the beaches here at gulf shores, alabama are absolutely pristine. the politics of the cleanup are anything but that one local congressman joe bonner saying it's the worst of chicago politics. closed door negotiations are underway in washington between the governor of all the gulf states. the justice department and bp oil to determine just how much bp should be fined. the fines will be huge, up to $20 billion. last june, an expectation of that windfall congress passed what they call the restore act which requires that 80% of that money be dispersed by local officials to compensate not just for he can logical damage but for economic damage, too. >> we were devastated. we were closed for the summer of 2010, which is our year. we are seasonal destination. >> but sources say that justice department negotiators are steering the finds through the national resources damage assessment which would requir
are down because people are just giving up. doug mcelway with details of the latest disagreement. doug? >> the controversy surrounding the release of the september unemployment numbers continues to it swirl after one of america's most respected ceos took to twin citieser to find up off this tweet. "unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't dewait so change numbers. peacing a torrent of criticism for the defeat. welch struck about the criticism of the number. >> who is participating. who is not working. who is trying to work but has dropped out. all of these things. it just raises the question i think there ought to be a good discussion aut how this number is calculated. >> most analysts are dismissing welch's criticism as utter early without evidence while at the same time pointing out that the jobs numbers largely reflect an obama econom an obat has the economy still stuck in neutral. >> the policies that the president put in place actually made it worse. including the fact that obama care is causing small employers not to hire because of rising healthcare
-a-sketch, but doug brinkley's piece offers a quite different view. can i quote, obama must be judged by the things he won't allow to happen on his watch. wall street thieving, bush-style nis c fiscal irresponsible, the reversal of roe v. wade. if he loses romney and ryan will crush his initiatives without remorse. that's right, isn't it? if you're a young person who is currently covered by health care, you can kiss that good-bye. if you're a young person who is relying on pel grants, you can kiss that good-bye. >> if you take mitt romney at his word, there's no way the industry will accept it unless you have a mandate which he also dislikes. his promises or at least the things he says he likes doesn't stack up with what he says he will deliver. to doug's point, if you think the reforms that this president and the last congress enacted are going to stop wall street thieving, you're smoking something that rolling stone probably understands very well. you know, this will not stop wall street thieving. the fact that wall street hates this president may be a feather in the cap for some progressives and ma
.1%. doug mckelway live at the white house with more. doug? >> reporter: hey, jon, these new unemployment numbers obviously coming as tremendously welcome news to an obama campaign that is still reeling from what most now agree was a lackluster debate performance last month. in fairfax, virginia, at george mason university, the president departed from his standard stump speech to tout these new numbers. here he is just moments ago. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. [cheers and applause] because of your strength and resilience, the strength and resilience of the american people, we've made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> reporter: but behind these apparently encouraging unemployment numbers are some very confusing and conflicting statistics. the number of unemployed dropped 456,000 last month while only 11,000 new jobs were added, so that leaves 342,000 people kind of up in the air. did t
. it means you are holding your own. it means you are standing still. martha: acting ratings aside. doug mcelway joins us from washington. we are hearing that film which was supposed to rally the troops within the agency cost $52,000 to make? >> reporter: $52,000 that anybody with a mac laptop and camera could put together. but that was only a small portion of what the orlando conference called. taxpayers shelled out $5 million. that's five times the amount spent on the general services administration notorious conference in las vegas that caused so much outrage on capitol hill. the va's top human resource manager resigned in a statement he said, quote, i resign because i did not want to be a distraction for the administration, or the secretary and the va, especially as they continue to work each day to address the urgent needs our nation's veterans. the oig is investigating allegations that 11 employees illegally accepted gift such as helicopter, stretch limo rides, hotel rooms, concert tickets, spa treatments and gift baskets. martha: you would have thought given the story you referenc
. megyn: doug schoen is a former adviser for president clinton and pat caddell for president carter. >> this comes from the top. they regroup the obama campaign after the debate, a disastrous debate by all polls and all accounts and they decide they had to go back to a narrative which has worked, the most virulent attacks on governor romney, attack him as a felon, criminal, murderer, it worked. they were ahead while he were doing it. they have 29 days left. the bottom line, it worked then, call him a liar and it will get the president-elected. megyn: he has been attacked as a possible felon by the obama campaign and priorities u.s.a. as a murderer responsible for the death of a man's wife. and it was a lie. is this an effective campaign strategy? tight worked in the past because romney hasn't been on the stage. the problem is 70 million americans saw a debate. they could see for 90 minutes and make a judgment about governor romney and the president and they made a judgment. let me tell you the other problem the president's campaign has. this is coming from the top, which is this dis
's where malarkey came in. doug mcelway is live in washington. we have our own fact checkers. i would never use that word on any of your reports. >> so i can state for the record i didn't do the fact checking, that would be malarkey. it was our brain room that did the fact checking from last night. last night's debate focused heavily on entitlements prompting paul ryan to attack obamacare for costing harm to seniors who use medicare advantage. >> 7.4 million seniors are projected to lose the medicare advantage coverage they have, that is a $3,200 medicare cut. >> true or you false? it is true. they wrote, quote, we estimate in 2017 when the medicare advantage provisions will be fully phased in enrollment in medicare advantage plans will be lower by about 50% from it's projected level of 14.8 million under the prior law to 7.4 million under the new law. all right. moving along now. another statement to fact check from paul ryan regarding this often repeated romney campaign contention that obamacare takes $716 billion away from medicare. listen up. >> obama care takes $716 billion from medica
government romney spent a lot of time on the offensive. doug luzader takes a closer look. >> reporter: they sat down at the table last night with the same ultimate goal in mind, and that is, of course, winning come november 6th. they have two different strategies to get there. >> this debate begins as they do, with a handshake. as they headed to their seats, they had different objectives. romney, to preserve his momentum, the president to get some back. when romney questioned cuts to the navy, a critical issue in the battleground state of virginia, the president delivered what his supporters think was the line of the night. >> you mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than in 1916. governor, we have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changeed. >> reporter: we the split screen may have told the story, with the president not stepping down and this time, it was morally a glare. while the focus was on foreign policy with questions like russia, israel and libya, romney made a pivot to the weak economy. >> amermust lead and for that to hap
at a conference in 2010. doug mckelway is following it arrive in washington. doug? >> gregg, one of the features of that conference in orlando last year was the presentation of a parody film, a takeoff on the classic "patton." it was designed to motivate va employees. here's a snippet of the film. >> one of the worse mistakes you can make in carrying out your mission is getting the idea in your head that stability is a virtue. stability is not a virtue, it's a trap. it means you're holding your own, you're standing still. >> reporter: the film goes on with interviews of va employees and beneficiaries. it cost $52,000 to produce that little 15-minute film. it was shown only twice. yet that price tag is only a fraction of the cost of the overall conference. the va billed taxpayers over $5 million for the conference, that's more than five times what that notorious xsa conference -- gsa conference in vegas cost. what's more, just as with the gsa, the va inspect general's report found investigators were lousy at keeping track of their expenses. quote: >> reporter: a day before this damaging ig report
representatives, rich burma from the obama campaign and doug -- [inaudible] from the romney campaign. rich is currently a partner where he works on matters of national security law, most recently served in the obama administration as the assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs. earlier in his career rich served with harry reid and prior to that worked in the house of representatives for the national democratic institute and as an officer in the air force judge advocate general's corps. doug zakheim was senior vice president of bozell and hamilton. during the bush administration, doug was chief financial officer or comptroller for the department of defense, and he's had several other pentagon posts over his career and is the author of a dozen books. i note that the event today is being live streamed on cnn.com, and i'd note also that you can find materials related to the event and to the elections on the web sites of our three organizations including a national security guide to the presidential election on the cns web site. so we'll proceed today as follows. each of the campai
was actually accurate? doug mckelway live in washington with a fact check for us. >> reporter: good morning, jon. there was a lot of loose play with the facts. let's start with questioner candy crowley permitted. >> in what ways you do intend to correct in the workplace, females making 72% what they earned. >> reporter: that 72% figure is a myth endured for years. the census bureau admitted as much last month. >> we don't have a way to measure equal pay for equal work. we compare full-time earnings for year-round work between men and women. >> reporter: in fact census data are a rough measure of women's wages versus all men wages without kind of jobs they choose to accommodate needs for families. a fact challenge that came up regarding taxes. >> he was on "60 minutes" just two weeks ago and he was asked, is it fair for somebody like you, making $20 million a year to pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or a bus driver, somebody making $50,000 a year? and he said yes, i think that's fair. >> reporter: the president there is comparing romney's investment income tax to payroll taxes for that bus
, and the basic tag line of the ad is let's finish what we started. now, i have heard smart guys like doug schohn and stan greenberg say for months and months that is not good. you got to try a new tack, but that's still what they are doing. do you think finish what they started is their message? is that a reason to re-elect barack obama? >> the last incumbent president re-elected during a somewhat challenging time george w. bush had had a motto the whole campaign, steady leadership in times of change. i do think that the american public can distinguish between a bad situation that has a lot of historical roots and what they are trying to do, and whether you're talking about detroit or you're talking about the jobs numbers or you're talking about signs of hope or talking about a stock market that is roaring back, that doesn't fix the problems. >> a ri -- >> just to finish larry's question, i agree with your point, by the way, that the real long-term unemployment numbers are worse and that hurts people out there, but i do think people can make that distinction. >> hang on, hang on. >> i've got to
can. megyn: joining me now, doug schoen, former advisor to president bill clinton, pat cad dale, -- pat caddel, former vice sore to president jimmy carter. both co-hosts on fox news channel, sunday at -- >> 5:30 p.m. megyn: what is really going on here? this got started with vice president joe biden's comments at the debate saying we didn't know the folks at in libya were requesting for security and it spiraled from there. what is really happening, doug? >> we have 25 days to go until the election the obama administration is trying to foist off blame and responsibility, whether it be now the state department, before it was the intelligence community. they're using what i call the sergeant schultz defense, i know nothing. that is what they're trying to do. vice president biden said we didn't know. they have spun that into the white house, not the administration. and bottom line, they're trying to get through the next three weeks plus. megyn: in the mind of the voter does it make any difference whether hillary clinton knew and barack obama didn't, or is it just the administration
not think the romney camp has figured on a way to get behind that yet. host: doug in boston, massachusetts is a democrat. caller: romney seems enthusiastic about going into iran with the israelis, however is a war crime without a chapter 7 resolution. george bush was recently advised not to travel to switzerland because of the laws of jurisdiction. guest: it would be an interesting question to hear responses from. i would point out it is not always a violation of international law to invade or attack a company without a chapter 7 resolution. there is the universal right of self-defense, but i remind the caller that if one country in invades the other, while that might not be legal, the country that is fighting back is not in violation of anything. host: matthew lee, you recently wrote a piece, "why it matters to israel to tell -- why it matters -- israel." how was this playing out. guest: i think mitt romney will try to expand on the idea that he brought up in the last debate, that president obama has tried to put distance between the united states and israel. it is indisputable that there
certainly have a lot of tweets here that we want to read as well. doug says -- the new york times editorial this morning -- greg on the independent line. thank you for holding. what did you think of the debate? caller: thank you once again for having me on. i seem to be lucky to get on when you are on. i am a 33-year watcher of c- span. i thought without question that gov. romney won the debate last night. i thought the president was listening to a lot of repugnance and also to his adviser -- a lot of the pundits and also to his advisers to not be as a professor tutorial in his responses. mitt romney clearly had the night last night as far as the debate itself. i think they need to go back to the drawing board and allow barack obama to be barack obama. not so much again as have the appearance of the president, which he is. i have heard most of the pundits were saying that the president should not go on the attack and he should look more presidential and not necessarily play the blame game as to what brought us here. congratulations to mr. romney on his performance. host: does that crystalli
doug says about the defense spending. the sequester i don't think that you were in the room for that as far as i can tell and a was an interesting story to tell and as someone could go back and just do a google's search for the number of republican leaders that stood up for the sequestered. no one thinks it should come into effect. it was never supposed to come into effect and quite frankly the vice presidential candidate congressman ryan supported this and the budget control and the cuts are so devastating that he would also agree the fiscal strength is probably important abroad as well and economic strength, and i don't know how an additional $2 trillion in spending on defense that is on paid for with of the additional assets that you are talking about that no one in the pentagon has asked for except for perhaps the four advisers that do not serve on the campaign. the amazing things to take a number and then build it, a builder can pan around it instead of designing a strategy of which you build the defense philosophy around that. >> first on iran, mr. romney actually beli
for. one, does the president show the want to, the energy that doug wilder was talking about. two does he more fec livety take on mitt romney and the centrist tone he was striking in the last debate. finally, does he do better at laying out a concrete vision for a second term. democrats want him to do all three. >> larry kudlow the debate in about a minute and a ahalf. >> i think john is right. i think the fulcrum of this debate will be about economic growth and jobs but i think the benghazi thing, with hillary saying it's my responsibility, the night before the debate, i think that puts it right into barack obama's lap. i think this is a great clinton power play, very clever on the clinton's part and now the president's going to have that ball and he better not fumble it. >> governor romney is going to be pushing this. >> he's going to go right for it. you know he's going right for it. keith is right about the economy, but people are very upset about an ambassador getting killed. >> we take you to hofstra university, a town hall with about 80 voters chosen by gallup uncommitted regist
who would not come work for me two terms earlier. doug foye who ran environment and economic development together, bob posen senior financial executive. so he's a real born chief executive. and that's a pretty handy qualification for president of the united states. >> it is. but is mitt romney the campaigner, then, different from mitt romney the elected official? >> i think he's fairly gentle on the campaign trail. he's certainly gentle and decent and private. he's one of the most decent guys that i've ever met. people are asking me these days, well, is mitt the moderate going to show up for work on day one if he's elected president. my answer is yes. as i say i know him very well. i've spent a lot of time with him. ridden around the back of a car with him in new hampshire. gone door-to-door in new hampshire with him. i've seen him a lot with just him and ann. and he's a fabulous guy. he's a guy who does not have any unattractive edge. >> so then is mitt the moderate held to task by the far rights of his party on socialish zblus. >> i don't know. i'm not a movement conservati
